BondAgent™

Structured Products Software Solution

BondAgent™ is designed to create waterfall cash flows and bond analytics from collateral data. Built into Vision™, and leverages MIAC CORE™ – macro-factor driven, loan-level credit, and prepay models.

Customize and Analyze the Collateral Cash Flow Modeling Process

Forensic Analysis

Understand the sources and uses of cash in the structure
  • See collateral, bond, and reserve account outstandings
  • See if interest or reserves are used to pay principals
  • Understand the use of over-collateralization, and how much is needed to pay the bond principal
  • See where bond principal or reserves are used to pay bond interest
  • Understand writedowns on bonds, or a failure to pay required bond principal relative to collateral writedowns

Customization

Control the structure in fine detail
  • Customize any calculations to change the waterfall cash flows
  • Build any waterfall trigger in the structure
  • Easily add customized fees, reserves, and bonds

Structure Wizard

Plan the overall structure and paste it into the Wizard
  • Paste in the Bond Structure and Waterfall Priority
  • Select Collateral Pool
  • See the final structure graphically

Sensitivity Analysis

Advanced cash flow risk analytics are integrated into the most comprehensive bond valuation tool available.

Stochastic Generator

BondAgent performs stochastic analysis of collateral model drivers for cash flow generation.
  • Simulates stochastically a range of outcomes or paths for macro-factors that drive MIAC collateral behavior models, such as unemployment, house price index, and CPPI
  • Can perform analysis with as many macro-factor paths as desired (select number of paths)
  • Automated and user-defined calibration of stochastic models from historical time-series’ via the Hurst exponent
  • Produces a correlation matrix for selected variables so that they retain historical or even user defined inter-dependencies

Price/Yield Tables

Update collateral and bond pricing assumptions.
  • Bond Shocks: Yield shocks, spread shocks, price shocks (solve for yield)
  • Collateral Shocks: Prepayment speed, default, and loss assumptions
  • Generate separate cash flow tabs for each collateral assumption

Reverse Stress Testing

Reverse Stress Testing determines the specific levels of CDR (or REO Entry) Pct, CPR, or Loss that results in user-defined level of losses or paydowns for the bond.
  • Solves for timing and magnitude of borrower behavior for when targets are reached
  • Will work through the entire waterfall to show how each bond below a targeted bond is written down

Risk Retention Analysis

MIAC utilizes BondAgent™ to generate Risk Retention analysis, bond price discovery, and investor reports for structured finance products for our clients.
